Background

The International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) is a global coalition of PLHIV and community activists working to achieve universal access to optimal HIV, HCV and TB treatment for those in need. Formed in 2003 by a group of 125 HIV activists from 65 countries at a meeting in Cape Town, ITPC actively advocates for treatment access in eight regions across the globe. ITPC believes that the fight for treatment remains one of the most significant global social justice issues.

The on-going rapid spread of COVID-19 is challenging the capacity of governments and of the World Health Organization (WHO) to put in place adequate measures in response to the pandemic. 

In addition, to remdesivir and dexamethasone several promising drugs for COVID-19 have been identified and are in various stages of clinical trials. Some of these drugs are already or could be produced locally in several developing countries. If efficacy and safety of such medicines are demonstrated, rapid, mass availability at an affordable cost would be essential to ensuring equity and access, especially in low- and middle-income countries. 

To discuss these issues, the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition ITPC and Make Medicines Affordable (MMA) campaign is organizing a series of virtual roundtables with independent local generic manufacturers (non-licensees) from Brazil, Argentina, Morocco, Egypt, Ukraine, Russia and Thailand with other experts working actively on access to medicines issues.

A first roundtable organized in May 2020 gathered around 25 participants, and various issues on COVID-19 potential treatments and strategies on overcoming intellectual property barriers were discussed. . For this second roundtable, we intend to review newest updates regarding COVID-19 clinical trials on potential treatments - on sofosbuvir/daclatasvir, in particular, and further the discussions and engagement of community organizations with local manufacturing companies.
